Jacques Brel
Jacques Romain Georges Brel (April 8, 1929 October 9, 1978) was a Belgian French-speaking singer-songwriter. The quality and style of his lyrics are highly regarded by many leading critics of popular music. Brel's songs are not especially well known in the English-speaking world except in translation and through the interpretations of other singers, most famously Scott Walker. Others who have sung his work in English include David Bowie, Dusty Springfield, The Dresden Dolls, and Terry Jacks. In French-speaking countries, Brel is also remembered as an actor and director.
